All modules fit on standard 35mm DIN rail and each has an integrated backplane. As a result, there is no separate backplane to purchase and no external wiring between modules. Simply attach each module to the DIN rail and slide them together until they mate to one another.
The EOTec 2000 Series represents an extremely flexible and scalable solution to the problems often encountered when using copper to interconnect communication nodes. Both multi-mode and single-mode fiber optic links are supported. Options are available to support all the popular fiber optic connectors (ST, SMA, SC), providing users the ability to construct dependable and robust networks.
Problems such as ground loops, isolation and lightning strikes are eliminated with the EOTec 2000 fiber optic converters. Fiber optic communication links can also be extended over much greater distances and take on physical topologies not available with copper networks. For instance, star and self-healing ring topologies are impossible when using copper interconnects. These configurations are easily achievable with the EOTec 2000.
